i got a search form , a results form and a product and issue form
the search form asks the user what he wants to search
the results form displays the results that match his search
the product form let the user add the product

i want the user to return to the product form after he press the search button on the product form
and he can also return back to the issue form after he press the search button on the issue form

the search button will show the search form -> results form-> product or issue form

how do i know which form the user is on like product or issue so i can return him
to the correct form when he presses the back button...

there is also a main form which has another search button
which calls the same search form but will displays the results
in another form called  view

how do i return focus back to the main form after the user
press the back button on the view form?

i need some working code..

You can know the active form :
     screen.ActiveForm

To make navigation between forms, you could use 2 variables :
    dim frmActual   as Form
    dim frmPrevious as Form

When you navigate, you set the two variables like you want. Doing this, you always know from wich form you coming from

Why do you need people to actually DO YOUR PROJECT FOR YOU!
 Man I hate that.

Ok...  

Make a variable, call it g_frmCur  (make it global)

In the issue and product form, in the activate event, set g_frmCur = me

now the search form can reference g_frmCur.name and know where it is.
